Board Opportunities

We work with companies and organisations to help bridge the diversity gap on their boards by sharing vacant roles with our network, providing a shortlist of qualified candidates that meet their criteria, or through our bespoke search service.

Open Doors

Open Doors is the first globally accredited board training offered specifically to women leaders from across Africa. This programme covers the core modules of Governance, Finance, Strategy and Leadership, and this course leads to the award in Company Direction issued by the UK's Institute of Directors. The programme has been specifically designed for TBR Africa members with bonus sessions such as the Leadership Workshop, a Board Simulation Exercise and a Speakers’ Panel.

Open Doors gave me the confidence to further understand boardroom dynamics and how I can use my position as boardroom chair to strengthen and support the organisation’s leadership as well as my fellow board members.
Yolisa Kani, Chief Business Development Officer, Transnet SOC
Beyond the network, I also benefited from the classes — particularly the modules on finance, which went beyond the numbers to focus on the “why” of mechanisms and processes. Learning is a curve that never stops.
Nabou Fall, Managing Director, Vizeo
From the modules to instructors, this is a world-class training. While I certainly had a tremendous learning curve, I walked away knowing how I can be more effective in a board role.
Abam Mambo-Doh, Regional Legal Director, Microsoft
